PANTOS LOGISTICS UK, which only entered the UK logistics market five years ago, is making a significant impact despite the current economic turndown, and has set its sights on becoming a top-ten global logistics organisation by 2010. The company offers multi-modal logistics services, together with modern warehousing and state-of-the-art IT systems, and has blue-chip customers across many commercial and industrial sectors.
The company began operations in Korea in 1977, serving local businesses and their airfreight requirements. Since then it has become the largest Korean-owned logistics organisation, and has developed a global network of offices throughout the world, latterly entering the South American and Australian markets.
The company first entered Europe on the success of its Asian business and the global demands of its customers. Since then it has opened ten offices across Europe, which now collectively generates a turnover of close to USD 100 million. In 2008 the group's combined annual turnover is projected to top USD2 billion with global TEU movements in excess of 1.3 million.
Says Pantos Logistics European President, Hyun Que Park: “We continue to monitor economic developments closely, but we see the present situation more as an opportunity than a threat and are well placed to grow in supporting the supply chain needs of our customers with our diverse range of products and services. Globally, we have developed a number of initiatives by working closely with our suppliers, which enables us to offer a specialist service to a wide range of industrial sectors, that includes Electronics, Hi-Tech, Retail, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing, Automotive, Heavy Industry and Chemicals. To support these sectors Supply Chain requirements we have developed a state-of-the art IT system, branded 'Single Window', which gives visibility to customers of more than 80 million items located across the Pantos network whilst enabling them to track shipments and place orders through the same portal”
“Essential to our success is our work ethic which is to strive to become a vital part of our customers' supply chain operations, and in effect, an 'integrated extension' to their businesses. To do this we have to understand their business and its dynamics and deliver the highest levels of service consistently. We feel our new motto Visible – Intelligent Solutions encapsulates this – well engaging both systems and people within the process”
